H&M does it again!

When I lived in London, so many of my wardrobes staples came from H&M; inexpensive and fashion/trend led it was a great place to shop, I miss it! Even now back in NZ people always ask me where I got certain pieces of clothing and the answer is invariably 'H&M'.

So you can imagine my excitment when I heard they had launched a homeware collection!!! Thanks to my lovely friend & ex-collegue Carole of Dear Designers blog, for giving me the heads up!

I have just been trawling through the H&M home site to bring you my fav's & must haves.

I was really impressed with the website, its really well set out and anything you click on it gives you the co-ordinates or relating products which is really helpful.

So go check it out and if you are UK based and buy something, let me know so I can live vicariously through you!!! :)

Royal Wedding on a Plate

Can't believe there is a royal wedding just around the corner! I was a HUGE Princess Diana fan as a child

the woman could even look stunning in a pretty dodgy jumper! Now that is style. I made scrap books of her images, had paper dolls of her and Charles (even with the wedding dress) and speaking of the wedding of course I watched the WHOLE thing on TV. As an eight year old it was a fairy tale fantasty come true.

And now 30 years later (god can it REALLY be that long......) its happening all over again.

its very exciting, not so much for me as the first time round, but I would still love to back in London for the build-up and buzz of it all.

So to get you in the swing, check out some of the most fabulous wedding souvenir china on the market.

this is my fav :)

thanks to the Creative Review Blog for hooking me up!
